Thank you to everyone who participated in our 2014 Halloween Six Word Story Contest!
Check back for our Valentine’s Six Word Story Contest coming up in January.

Ghosts, goblins, witches, and jack-o-lanterns. Haunted houses, skeletons, and screams. Dig deep into your twisted psyche and come up with a six word story to bring out the spooky Halloween spirit in us all.

The top four winners were announced at the Portland member meeting on October 7th, 2014 at The Old Church, and one story was tweeted by Willamette Writers per week in October. The Grand Prize winner had her story tweeted the week of Halloween, and received a gift basket featuring tricks and treats from local businesses.
